Artist Residency in Alaska at
The Homestead AK

We are situated 100 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska – just south of
Talkeetna, the historic village nestled at the base of Denali (Mt.
McKinely). Our facilities comprise 80 acres of homesteaded land
including a time-honored California ranch style home to accommodate
artists. Work space is ample, spanning a shared studio space, and half a
century of homesteader’s wares and woes.
Our mission is to support creative discovery by providing unique time
and space to practitioners. We encourage the responsible use and reuse
of the abundant collection of materials at hand, promoting an
environment that upholds tradition and advances contemporary art
practices of all kinds. Our residency acts as an open forum for its
participants to converse, collaborate, and build ties with the greater
community.
With nearly 24 hours of daylight, the sun helps us disregard clocks and
allow our internal timepieces to guide us. Each season, the work methods
and practices of our artists are dramatically influenced by the land of
the midnight sun. This experience has also proven to naturally promote
lasting professional and personal relationships between alumni, often
resulting in continued collaboration and development in the public
space.

We are still accepting applications for the July 20 – August 10, 2011 session.
